Forum: GratefulDead Subject: Scare me please...

I am in search of scary meltdown space chaos from the billy only years. I feel that the "spaces" from those years are much more musically creative and inspired than other years.

I can get into feedback from the 60's briefly, but they don't seem to ever go anywhere...

"Spaces" I've heard from the 80's and 90's tend to be musically lazy, and the band relies more on the technology than the actual use of their instruments.

Note: preference given to scary over mellow.

Note 2: Sound quality and interesting segues to/from the space are a plus.

Note 3: please correct and enlighten me about 80's and 90's spaces if I'm wrong.

Note 4: i got some great leads towards jazzy shows from this era about a week ago, and I never officially thanked anyone, so here it is: THANK YOU!!!

here's some scary off the top of my head...

8/21/72- this great dark star contains my favorite '72 tiger jam, including phil denying jerry's attempt to start morning dew. very aggressive.

4/2/73- the jam between here comes sunshine and bobby mcgee is unique and moves through some interesting spaces
http://www.archive.org/details/gd73-04-02.sbd.miller.17346.sbeok.shnf

6/18/74- you've probably heard it, but there are just so many great moments in the wrs>other one>it's a sin. other one gets scary. then funky. 1974.

actually, 74 has quite a bit of the scary. i am currently listening to the show after louisville (6/20/74) and the jam between truckin and eyes is just great. more of the aggressive, angular, dense 74 jamming that touches on some funk/fusion but still stays pretty out harmonically. good stuff. oh, and also- seastones is scary.

I was in a big "find me a freaky Playin'" mood about a year ago and came across Hofheinz Pavilion 11/18/72. This might do the trick for you. I know that during one of my early listens I actually had to stop it.

Archive only has the second set, but that's what you want anyway.

Enjoy.

check out what this reviewer says about the Dark Star

" about this dark*
This is probably the most evil dark* of its time. It is not the prettiest (see dane county '73), but it will twist your brain and make your dog start barking at you. I feel pity for the poor souls who were too high on LSD at this concert. May G.O.D. have mercy on their souls."

Reviewer: Terrapin31590 - [5.0 out of 5 stars] - August 29, 2005
Subject: Deep Space Dead
This is some of the heaviest darkest music the Dead ever performed. Not for the faint of heart. There is a great review of this show in the Compendium, but in sum, although the weirdness starts in set 1 with an evil Victim, when Healy starts shooting Weir's voice through the box during Estimated, it's on. Brent denies us a truly warped Blow Away rap ala 7/7/89 but the sickness and sonic destruction otherwise known as the last East Coast Dark Star of the 80s takes this show to a whole other place. The back side of the second set shows a band clearly spent by the activities as they limp through perfunctory versions of Stella and NFA. The Bid You Goodnight encore is somewhat curious in light of the darkness of the show.

it's weird that you are my first response and you mentioned that show - that is the show I was listening to when I wrote the post! That dark star gets hot at the end!

sorry, i got confused. I was actually listening to the end of the other one from 09-28-72 before it goes into bobby mcgee. that's some sick shit! but i dig the dark star you mentioned too. i've been getting confused a lot lately- maybe because i'm only listening to space?

This is a rare 90's wildness, try the jam between the Playin & UJB>
